Practice areas
  1. Discrimination
    20%
    Discrimination in employment is prohibited for those employers in California who employee 5 or more employees, and based on what we call protected categories: age, gender, race, religion, disability, and others.

    30 years

  2. Employment and labor
    20%
    I maintain a low volume practice so I can focus on each matter, especially those that have to be litigated. My practice is well suited for serious matters that require a lot of knowledge, experience, and resources.

    30 years

  3. Litigation
    20%
    Litigation cuts across everything I do, from the moment of the first client contact, it is a consideration: how to avoid it when we can, whether the client and the case are suitable for it if we can't.

    44 years

  4. Sexual harassment
    20%
    I would love to be able to say this area has gone out of "practice." But it persists. I have handled many serious sexual harassment cases and I make it a point to give each one the attention it deserves.

    30 years

  5. Wrongful termination
    20%
    Not every unfair termination is considered legally a wrongful termination. There is a lot of overlap with retaliation, discrimination, and whistleblowing.

    30 years

Well rounded, many creative and active interests, professionally skilled to protect clients financial interests yet insightful on emotional pressures of legal disputes.

Robert Robinson is a highly capable attorney who excels in Employee Arbitration cases
Robby Robinson is a very capable, stand-up attorney. He represented me in a long, contentious employee arbitration suit, in which we prevailed. He was thorough, diligent in his research, patient, calm in his demeanor but steadfast in his determination to win the case. His very fair, straightforward and low-key style earned him credibility with the arbitration judge as well as even his adversaries. These cases can be emotional for the claimant, and Robby maintained a positive, confident, professional and calming approach throughout the process. He took the time to make sure that I understood what to expect up front, and explained all the proceedings as we went along. He maintains a lean, but capable team and held up extremely well even when faced with a much larger firm on the other side who always showed up with a few more lawyers than we did. I would not hesitate to recommend Robby Robinson to others seeking representation in employee litigation.

Endorsement for Robby Robinson
Robby Robinson is a colleague of mine and we have worked on several employment law cases together. Robby is a superb lawyer and is, in my opinion, one of the top employment law trial attorneys in Orange County. Robby has extensive trial experience and is well-respected in the community by both judges and attorneys. He is intelligent, hard-working, and has contributed to the successful outcome on each case we have worked on together. I strongly endorse Robby.

Employer Retaliation
My case was a work place retaliation situation. I found myself out of work after 19 years with my company and I needed a good attorney. Robby was recommended to me by a friend who is an attorney who represents employers. He told me that he had run up against Robby before and Robby gave him the roughest time in court. So, I met with Robby and it was decided rather quickly that I had a valid case. During our many meetings, depositions, court hearings and eventual trial, Robby was always prepared and had me prepared as well to meet the many difficult situations that we had to overcome to finally win our case. My case took over 4 years to settle and during that time Robby was always professional in his conduct and treated my case with the utmost urgency. I can't remember any time when Robby didn't keep me informed on developments. He was always responsive to my phone calls and questions, and was very knowledgeable about my particular type of case and the hurtles we would have to overcome to win the case. I placed a lot of trust in Robby as the outcome of this case was of great importance to me and my family. When all is said and done I would most definitely give Robby my recommendation. He is a honorable man and to this day we are still friends.

Honest and Hardworking
I found Robby, in working with me to be very hardworking, very detail oriented. My case took about 3 years to wind its way through the California Court system. He was dedicated to my case and responded promptly with my questions and inquires. I noted his dealings with other attorneys was respectful. I noted, that even though he was a knowledgeable lawyer he still continued to improve his craft. He has also helped my daughter in her legal entanglements. Our relationship started some 22 years ago and we have remained friends. He is far more intelligent than other Liberals I have known. He had an exceptional career as a Marine Officer. Lastly , his Pro Bono work was generous My last observation is that he has been an excellent father and an exceptional family man. He brought my case to a successful end and I am very thankful for that.
